Italy's bad weather and strikes raise concerns about voter turnout

Snow fell on the streets of Modena in northern Italy on February 23, a day ahead of general elections.

Student Alessandra Bruzzese said bad weather would not put her off: “No matter how much rain, young people are so angry after all these years of Berlusconi,” she said.

Another Modena resident, Stefano Rossi said, “Everyone should still go and vote anyway because it’s very important.”

Strikes by transport workers in several major cities will make it hard for some to cast their votes. Public transport services are expected to be reduced by up to 20 per cent in Rome, Turin and Naples due to industrial action.
